“Michael Ableman has a finely honed sensibility…. he gardens society, grows well-being, weeds out despair, and sows hope” - Paul Hawken.

Speaking as a farmer, father, student, and teacher, Michael Ableman takes us on a journey through fields and farms, classrooms and kitchens exploring a deeper soulful nourishment based on local, biological, interpersonal, and ecological relationships. Michael’s stories go beyond concepts, abstractions, or prescriptions, into real life lessons and inspirations that come from a life on the land lived with open eyes and an open heart.
« Michael Ableman possède une sensibilité d’une grande finesse…. il cultive la société, alimente le bien-être, arrache le désespoir et sème l’espérance. » Paul Hawken (traduction)

En compagnie de Michael Ableman – agriculteur, père de famille, étudiant et enseignant – nous explorerons les champs et les fermes, les salles de classe et les cuisines, à la recherche d’une alimentation qui nourrit le corps et l’âme, une alimentation fondée sur les relations locales, biologiques, interpersonnelles et écologiques. Les histoires de Michael vont au-delà des concepts, des idées abstraites ou des prescriptions : ce sont les leçons de vie et les sources d’inspiration d’un homme qui vit de la terre, avec les yeux et le cœur grand ouverts.
